PQube (London, UK) February 21st, 2019 – Arc System Works and PQube are excited to share the release date and more details about the Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack, which bundles up the original Guilty Gear and GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R for Nintendo Switch.
Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack will release on May 17th as a special day-one edition, including:
– a personal letter from Guilty Gear creator Daisuke Ishiwatari
– an artbook with unreleased works of his
Both games included in the pack will be available as separate digital versions for Nintendo Switch and the original Guilty Gear will release digitally for PlayStation 4.
Finally, a limited edition of only 500 pieces in Europe has been announced that comes with the only Nintendo Switch pouch anime fighting game fans will ever need! PQube is partnering with RICE Digital to bring this to the west and will have more details soon.
In 1998, one game made huge waves within its genre: Guilty Gear for the original PlayStation. Spectacular special moves that brought the console to its limits, a hardrock soundtrack that still has to meet its match, innovative mechanics and unique characters that kicked off an incredibly complex and epic anime story will equally fascinate fighting game fans today, as it did 20 years ago!
GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R
First released in 2008 in Japan, GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS R is the final installment and epitome of the Guilty Gear XX series that polished everything introduced in the 12 previous installments to reach optimal balance.
Mechanics like the universal overhead attack “Dust” as well as “Roman Cancel”, which allows players to cancel all kinds of actions and therefore increases their options dramatically, set the bar for the series’ sequel: Guilty Gear Xrd.
